Southern Broccoli Salad…

Whenever we have a family gathering, there is usually at least one recipe from my mother or one of my grandparents. My mother was an excellent cook and when I serve one of her dishes, we all feel like she is right there with us! This Southern Broccoli Salad is one of our favorites. You can easily double or triple the ingredients – you can also make it ahead. I actually think it tastes best when made at least 8 hours ahead of serving 🙂

We also love a pile of bacon 🙂
